Reading vertical barcodes

I'm trying to read barcodes from a scanned pdf.

Code: Select all

BarcodeReader bcr = new BarcodeReader();
bcr.Settings.ScanBarcodeTypes = BarcodeType.Code128;
bcr.Settings.ScanDirection = ScanDirection.LeftToRight | ScanDirection.RightToLeft
                                        | ScanDirection.BottomToTop | ScanDirection.TopToBottom;

// ..etc
Its fine if the barcode is horizontal but doesn't work if barcode is vertical. I've tried blowing the barcode up to fill almost the complete page of A4 so it's crystal clear, and it still won't pick it up.

Any ideas?

We are currently using the evaluation version, but we won't be purchasing unless we can start getting reliable results for our requirements.

I have received no reply from your support department.

Unfortunately we will have to start investigating other available libraries as we have been unable to demonstrate a working prototype of our system using your product.
